hello, my son is 4 months old and he only weighes 10lbs 9oz. He had surgery when he was a month old for plyoric stneosis (thickened stomach muscle). I was told that he should bulk right up afterwards, but he hasnt at all. We went to the doctors on friday and she had him get blood work done but they all came back normal. He has had a really bad cold like a month ago and still coughs a lot. He just recently started getting eye boogers a lot too. He eats all the time, to be exact he has about 5 or 6, 7oz bottles a day plus babyfood, but still wont gain weight. Im so worried. He is fine mentally, also he is 241/2 in long, so he is good when it comes to length too. Please if anyone knows what could be wrong please tell me.View Thread
